The Story Behind Raptor Lifts
It was a beautiful day and my family and I wanted to take the boat out on the water to have some much needed relaxation and family fun. Got the kids ready, prepared the snacks and beverages, gathered all the necessities (towels, sunscreen, life jackets, sunglasses, hats, etc….with 3 kids under 4, this is like a 2 hour process! ) and headed out.
Loaded up the boat, lowered the lift, only to find we were an inch or two from floating. You have got to be kidding me! We tried many options to get the boat off, but nothing worked. But, then we were concerned how we would get the boat back on if we did get it off. An inch kept us from having an awesome family experience.
Unfortunately, this happened every year. We paid for extra dock sections to keep us farther out in the water (that was expensive!), tried placing floating devices under the boat (what a pain!)…we just wanted something that worked.
I drafted a concept and started to build the first prototype in a friend’s back yard. I started to receive outside interest…thus Raptor Lifts was born. I didn’t want anyone else to miss out on valuable family time due to an inch. Here we are now, chasing the American Dream.
